Your hard-won vote can bring reconciliation

Published 04/05/2015

The right to vote has been hard-won, with some people dying for the privilege. It should be everyone's civic duty to use their vote.

In the present circumstances, many feel disillusioned by many current politicians. The many good people who do not vote are letting evil prevail when they do nothing.

Instead of voting Green or Orange, why not vote yellow for a party that stands for hope and reconciliation, such as the Alliance Party?

If you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem. If you want change in society, you have to start by changing yourself.

That change could be a change away from traditional voting for sectarian parties to voting for a party of hope.
